The largest (physical) thing I'm contemplating bringing is a
VAX-11/725 if I can get the RC25 working. Big *if*.
Outside of that I don't have any small Unibus disk, so I'll drop back
to a MicroVAX.
I'm going to see if I can get my Perkin-Elmer 7350 Workstation working
(it spins up but there is NiCd damage that I think has wacked the
keyboard traces). That's a nice 68000 workstation from the early 80s
that has a CRT/keyboard console and 4 serial ports for additional
terminals. There's essentially no hardware documentation so I have to
trace it out from the keyboard connector into the backplane and onto
whatever card manages the keyboard. Possible but tedious.
So many choices of what CPUs to include. I'm really trying to come up
with some obscure entries, not just PET/Apple/TRS-80 or Amiga/Mac/etc.
Definitely plan to have 2-3 minis in the mix. 8" floppies where
appropriate because 5.25" are kinda pedestrian.
PDP-11 and VAX are high on the list but I might have a surprise micro
or two that people don't think of as Adventure Game platforms.
